asterisk 11 listen on port 5060

I was struggling with a recent asterisk version compiled from source to make it listen on port 5060...

Configure script gave no error, but it was not enough to consider asterisk as operational: openssl-dev or ssl-dev and uuid-dev packages must be installed to build a full-featured asterisk. Asterisk must then be reconfigured, built, etc.

The odd trick was that asterisk keeps building correctly even if ssl or uuid library is not available. Then you start it and it just doesn't listen on sip port (5060) or complains about the lack of an rtp engine...

Well, it seems that openssl dependency is mentioned in README, but uuid does not seem to be...

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU

The other trick of the day:

I was installing a rhel-based 64 bits iso on a virtualbox 32 bits xp host. This is possible thanks to the decent cpu I'm using at work and I knew that it worked because I had already installed a 64 bits debian (wheezy).

The error message was something like:

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU

During my first virtual machine installation, I was using default (32-bits) rhel version proposed by virtualbox.

The trick was just to turn OS type to 64-bits version in virtualbox virtual machine configuration parameters and it worked.

As it was not as high as expected in google rank, I just add it here...
